The nineteenth century was insatiable in its demand for popular works arranged for all imaginable combinations of instruments – a demand from which composers themselves were able to profit by producing arrangements of their own music. Thus, on 28 December 1891, Antonín Dvorák made an arrangement for cello and piano of piece no. 5, Klid (“Silence” or “Die Ruhe”), from his op. 68 cycle for piano four-hands, Ze Šumavy (“From the Bohemian Forest”). The immediate occasion was the farewell concert tour he gave with the violinist Ferdinand Lachner and the cellist Hanuš Wihan from 3 January to 29 May 1892 before embarking for America.
